URGENT Industry Input Required to WorkReady Subsidised Training List

Service Skills SA urgently needs our industry stakeholders to input into the current WorkReady subsidised training list survey. If we do not respond to this survey it is likely that a number of our qualifications will receive no or low levels of funding. This is particularly critical to those qualifications (including beauty, floristry, retail, sport, fitness & recreation, libraries and the arts) that have been deemed as having low public value.

Please provide feedback through the online survey by 5 pm on 20 April 2015.
